Please email us at to share the creative ministries that your congregation is undertaking! We have seen online prayer groups, Sunday School programs, children’s story times, Bible studies as well as guidance for how church members can practice their faith more deeply at home. Some church craft groups are making face masks for local hospitals. If you send us a contribution, then we will share it here!
